What is wellness? Promoting wellness within the workplace brings many challenges. Senior-level management support and a solid culture of health must be developed from the top-down. A review of everything from claims, benefits, to the vending machines must be done. A strategy must be developed to create motivation within the population to either move to healthier behaviors or maintain a good lifestyle. This often means implementing a variety of programs in order to engage the varying interests within the group. Typically this process begins by surveying the employees.
What can wellness do? The primary goal is to encourage a healthy lifestyle through training, reminders, competition and incentives. Reducing the number of risks an insured has will help lower claim costs, decrease absenteeism and worker’s compensation claims. Additionally, a successful program may increase attendance, moral and assist with recruitment.
